Teams behind the Oilers and their recent records:

Tampa Bay... 38 pts... 5 games left... 9 pts in last 10 games
Calgary... 38 pts... 5 games left... 8 pts in last 10 games
Nashville... 38 pts... 4 games left... 4 pts in last 10 games
Carolina... 36 pts... 6 games left... 4 pts in last 10 games
Colorado... 35 pts... 5 games left... 9 pts in last 10 games
Florida... 32 pts... 6 games left... 8 pts in last 10 games

With Edmonton playing the way they are... I can see Calgary and Tampa passing them quite easily.

Nashville and Carolina are playing like total crap and they will likely stay in the bottom 4.

Florida is likely too far down to crawl out of the basement.

That leaves Colorado... who are playing "relatively" well with 9 pts in their last 10 games. It will come down to the head to head with the Oilers to see who wants to suck more and get the higher draft pick. Got to go with the Avs for the win at this point as they are the "hotter" team and playing on home ice.

Certainly looks like the Oilers are heading towards a bottom 5 finish but bottom 3 still looks like a longshot.
